    It's true. If I'm alone for an long period of time or unable to socialize on a fairly regular basis then it starts to get to me. But the stress doesn't set in as quickly as if I was in a constant social setting with no time to myself.

    I wonder if extroverts go through phases of their lives where they don't feel the need to be around others constantly. I typed my mother as an INFJ because shes perfectly fine being a hermit these days. Yet I swear she has way more Fe than any INFJ I've ever heard of. So I wonder if shes an introverted ENFJ..

    Definitely. My "E" has weakened over the years, and so I see it even more now. I may not need as MUCH time as an I, but if I do not get it, I become seriously distressed and do not function well at all.

    Hell yes.
    Then again...it's entirely possible I might be a xNFP. Though I tested quite strongly as an 'E', I relate almost as much to the descriptions of 'INFP' as I do to 'ENFP'.
    (Though most would instantly type me as an 'E' without hesitation) The 'I' is just the more hidden, screwed-up, private part of me.

    Then again, aren't ENFP's the most inclined towards needing time 'alone to recharge' out of all the extroverted types...?

    Hmm.

    I have also heard that ENFPs are the most introverted of the extraverted types. People are a source of energy for me but I can only take it for so long. For example; I live in a house with six people, two cats and a dog, but I do spend most of my time in my room (albeit with at least one of the pets).
